A former producer for Survivor is currently involved in bit of a mess. I read the article describing the situation (which sadly made the top CNN headline) and I couldn't help but notice the following paragraph:
"Beresford-Redman built his career as a widely acclaimed Hollywood reality television show producer. He helped develop the popular 20-season CBS show 'Survivor,' in which contestants compete against each other in a variety of extreme outdoor scenarios."
1) EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT SURVIVOR IS, CNN STAFF WRITER! Or did the modifier "20-season" not tip you off to that?
2) "...contestants compete against each other in a variety of extreme outdoor scenarios"...? Didn't anyone tell you if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?
It continues to amaze me that in a country where we watch so much television that it leads to obesity, people are still describing TV shows as if they're a Japanese variety sport.
